This paper presents results of observations of full-scale propeller blade cavitation patterns carried out on the Elation passenger cruiser, the very first ship equipped with AZIPOD electric thrusters. It offers descriptions of test conditions, cavitation photos for a number of maneuvering modes, including acceleration, steering, initial crash stop phase, some comments on cavitation patterns and conclusions about propeller blade cavitation on the pulling option of azimuthal thrusters.
